We're Not Going to Sit Out on The Future of North Carolina

This fall, North Carolina voters will once again cast their vote for a number of critical races that could impact the future of HIV treatment and prevention efforts in our state and across the South. The NC AIDS Action Network and Duke HIV/AIDS Policy Clinic work with both Democratic and Republican administrations to strengthen our AIDS Drug Assistance Program (ADAP) and represent the interests of those living with HIV in our state. Just this year we were able to work with Republican legislators to successfully include language in both the state House and Senate budgets to expand access to health insurance for ADAP clients in our state. By working across the aisle and educating legislators about the public health and fiscal benefits of our work, we can achieve real benefits for those living with HIV in North Carolina.

The Veil of HB2: Spotlighting Transgender Issues to Cover Multi-Issue Legislative Attacks

Last month, North Carolina enacted HB2, a law that targets transgender people while also broadly attacking workers and local democracy. The full implications of HB2 have not been recognized in much of the media coverage, both in terms of the specific harms to trans workers of color, particularly trans women of color, as well as the broader effect of the law on all workers in North Carolina. By recognizing the full scope of the law while also centering our strategies as advocates for the communities most impacted, we’ll be in a stronger position to fight similar bills when introduced around the country.

Resilience and Hope in the Decade after Katrina

What is “home”? Asking this question, we often get responses in platitudes such as “home is where the heart is.” People on the Gulf Coast however, cannot think of home without equating it with Hurricane Katrina because it’s exactly what the storm took from them. It has been a decade since the storm but even now, too many people remain displaced. While much of the New Orleans metro area has been rebuilt, an estimated 100,000 or more New Orleanians have not been able to return home. Some haven’t had the means to come home, while others have returned to an unrecognizable place where home once was.

Mission Accomplished: Team Atlanta Wraps Up Their Service Year

Also during the week, AID Atlanta was invited to the Test Atlanta Testers’ Brunch and Awards Ceremony, an event honoring all of the various agencies providing HIV testing services throughout the city. We were pleasantly surprised when we came away with three awards! We were the recipients of awards for health department service, the community-based organization of the year, and the collaboration of the year, partnering for National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day with the Tau Epsilon Omega chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and their Twenty Pearls Foundation.

“Taking HIV Prevention to Church”

Everywhere you look in New Orleans, the face of God follows. Our football team is composed of Saints. A classic image of our city is St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square with its three black spires pointed toward the heavens despite that its foundation is below sea level. There are streets named for Christian martyrs, as well as Piety Street, Annunciation Street, and the most straightforward of all, Religious Street. Although many faiths are practiced freely in New Orleans, including Judaism, Islam, Mormonism, and even Santeria, the Christian influence on the city is perhaps the oldest and most pronounced in its landscape.

Team Atlanta Makes it Cool to Care about HIV Prevention

These events were eye opening for us because we were able to really get into the community and converse with other young people face-to-face. There is a great need for the HIV testing and counseling services we provide, and personally speaking, I think the students appreciated that we’re not just professionals; we’re their peers too. We’re at similar points in our lives, and we’re able to connect with them as young people who care about our health and our community. In essence, we make it cool to care!
